The FCC recently approved the Samsung SCH-i830, the first Windows Mobile for Pocket PC device to include both CDMA and GSM mobile technologies. The device is based on the previously-announced i730, and appears to share most of its features, including a sliding QWERTY keyboard and Bluetooth. But the i830 does not appear to have Wi-Fi or a camera, two carrier-optional features of the i730.

Verizon World Phone?
Zaniphan said:Definitely for business users.
